If you are an online retailer, and you don’t have a shipping strategy, you’ve got a tough road ahead. I hate to break it to you, but in today’s competitive e-commerce world, online shoppers want free shipping and fast shipping, and their expectations of an acceptable delivery window are shrinking.

Shipping costs are a huge pain, whether you are a large or small retailer. Most of the shippers dream of the day there will be no “Free Shipping.” However, free shipping has a significant impact on online retail sales, and it is here to stay. Therefore, reducing your shipping costs will help you make more profit and grow your sales.

Thankfully, there are some powerful resources and tips on setting up a successful shipping system that delivers – no matter what products you sell.
